We release zinc premia assessments for North America, Europe and Asia, with market updates to shed light on price drivers and movements. Our price and premia assessments rely on a robust methodology which we have developed over 30 years.

Our cost service brings you mining costs for 100% of zinc and lead production sites worldwide, including detailed data on hard-to-reach markets such as China. This allows you to evaluate cost trends and the competitive landscape more accurately.

CRU’s Zinc analysts in London and Beijing are highly committed to providing accurate and wide-ranging market intelligence, and are available for discussions on industry developments, prices, cost data or any aspect of our methodology.
